Washington : The headquarters were closed after a gunfight on Tuesday morning near the entrance to the Pentagon, the headquarters of the US Department of Defense. The Arlington County Fire Department said several people were injured but it was not immediately clear whether they were shot.
The Pentagon Protection Force Agency tweeted that the incident took place on a metro bus platform that is part of the Pentagon Transit Center. This location is in Arlington County, Virginia, which is located a short distance from Pentagon Headquarters.
An Associated Press (AP) reporter heard gunshots several times over a period of time. The Pentagon has said that the headquarters has been closed due to police action. Metro subway trains were ordered not to stop at the Pentagon station due to a police investigation.
